The way nurses work together and care for adult medicine patients and families in the Clinical Teaching Unit (CTU) 6200 at Royal University Hospital (RUH) has shifted in recent weeks as the unit launched its new nursing model.

The significant change has been introduced to the new Model of Care pilot area. This pilot area is where staff and physicians are implementing new processes developed last June by over 60 health care providers as part of the Region’s work to improve care experience for patients and families.

The model of care work in CTU 6200 will also assist in work underway to move patients, who are admitted to hospital but waiting for a hospital bed, faster from emergency to the unit. And, in the end, all this will also help prepare for the new adult emergency department for the RUH site which will be located in Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan.

Nursing Manager Janice along with RN’s Sandra and Lora discuss the new model:
